Community Matters

When Shane Homes was established in 1979, co-founder Cal Wenzel had the philosophy that the company would not only build quality homes within the community, but also help those communities grow.

Three decades later this philosophy still holds true, and the Shane Homes Group of Companies continues to be passionate about building strong relationships with the people who live in the communities in which we build.

“It’s a simple philosophy,” says Shane Wenzel, president of Shane Homes Group of Companies. “We are strong supporters of causes that promote health, wellness and education, and that help change people’s lives for the better.”
Over the years, we have re-invested millions of dollars back into the cities and towns in which we build, supporting the community and deserving causes. Our reputation for fairness, ethics and giving back has been one of our most valued assets. It is a pledge that we look forward to honouring in the years ahead.

Providing Support for a Happier Tomorrow

Supporting organizations that promote health and wellness is one of the three key pillars of our commitment to give back to the community.

A healthy body and a healthy mind allow all of us to make a positive contribution to society and we believe in taking a proactive approach. From funding high-tech medical equipment to sponsoring facilities focused on recreation and exercise, we are proud to provide our support to making for a happier tomorrow.

Helping Building Character Through Sport

We believe competition builds character, giving people, especially youngsters, a better chance of succeeding in whatever life path they follow.

From soccer to swimming, football to hockey, ringette to figure skating, we sponsor fields and pools, rinks and arenas and are particularly fond of creating opportunity and accessibility for people or families who might not be able to participate due to barriers, such as financial, distance and travel.
